Quite the most charming and well appointed home that you ever wish to find, and finding may take a few minutes as it is well hidden off the main Blarney/ Tower road. But from the moment you drive down the driveway you will be captured and enchanted by the grounds, the individual rooms, the breakfast conservatory and by Olwen and...

A senior couple plus a friend shared a huge triple room for three nights, and Maranatha couldn't have been a nicer place to stay. The room was bright, clean and spacious, the bathroom was clean and easy to access, and the breakfast was a great start to the days. One of our party had some lower intestinal problems, and the...

Quite simply, this was the most beautifully decorated B&B we stayed at in all of Ireland. Olwen, although with no formal training to speak of, poured her soul into the decor of this house and the results are outstanding. Along with the comfort of the room, the graciousness and hospitality of the owners, and the wonderful breakfast provided, this is...

Our original B&B booking was with a different place in Blarney, but our reservations had to be cancelled on account of a personal time conflict with the host (Blarney Vale B&B, please see my review there as well since she was ever so helpful and kind) - HOWEVER, she took care of moving our arrangements to Maranatha Country House and...

I loved staying here in May for 2 nights! It is absolutely gorgeous on the inside and all the rooms have cute names! I stayed in the Top Hat room and it did actually have a top hot on the coat rack! It was pink and Old Hollywood styled. There was a big picture of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers...

Our stay at the Maranatha Country House in Blarney was wonderful. We spent five nights in the Regal room, which is a very spacious room, including a giant sized whirlpool. We felt like royals for five nights. The house is very beautiful, has style and elegance. Olwen did a great job with the interior decorating. The garden is also very...

It was so good to be back. Olwen and Douglas could not have been more welcoming. It is a grand home of the late 1880's with lovely furnishing and grounds. This is Olwen's family home and you can easily detect the love she has for it. The grounds of Maranatha House are beautiful. One must take time to wander the...
